I have multiple rolls of film that I know will need to be turned upside down (due to the camera having been inverted during the shoot). Should I ask to have the images inverted during the transfer? Are there cost or work flow issues?
Thank you, and I apologize if this is a back-to-basics question!

I can't comment directly on prices, but this is a very common thing. I often do low mode with the camera inverted (especially with HD) since it's a much quicker changeover than pulling the camera off the sled and re-mounting to a low mode bracket and re-balancing. It's very rare that anyone has a problem with this (including producers), which leads me to believe that it either doesn't cost any extra, or that the cost is negligible.

I've done this in supervised telecine, pretty easy - I shouldn't think there's a cost factor.

Hopefully all your 180 rotations are on separate rolls if this is an unsupervised dailies transfer.

Of course you can do this later in post, although it's a render.
